Dear Galina,

This issue is Windows specific. It is related to the new ImageMagick 
library which is now built with Visual C++ 2008 and requires external 
VC++ 2008 runtime components. These components are not present by 
default on some versions of Windows.

The Microsoft VC++ 2008 Redistributable Package can be downloaded here:

Just install it and EBImage will work fine.

The INSTALL documentation of EBImage will be updated asap.

Hope this helps.
Best regards,

Gregoire Pau
EMBL Research Officer
